Stephanie + Summer

ROOTED IN LOVE

A sizzling start and tranquil Savannah ceremony under the trees

While working together in the fire department, sparks flew between Stephanie and Summer. When planning their wedding, they visited several “fun” cities and fell in love with Savannah the moment they touched down. In addition to being made to feel at home by everyone they encountered, they couldn’t imagine their big day without the involvement of Larissa at The Brice. They called the hotel’s entire staff “more than accommodating, friendly, knowledgeable, welcoming and genuinely excited for their big day,” and they greatly appreciated everyone loving their pup Graham as much as they do.


Memorable Details

The “first look” took place in Washington Square, where the brides were thrilled to finally see one another’s dress. They then returned to the bridal suite to enjoy more laughs with the entire bridal party and a celebratory toast. They walked to Warren Square for the ceremony and back to the Brice for the festive reception after several post-ceremony photos. Following bridal party introductions, everyone enjoyed an amazingly delicious meal.

“Our experience would be described as ‘unforgettable’! Until we stayed at The Brice, we never knew a hotel stay could feel so much like being home and [make us feel like] celebrities all at the same time!”

The couple came to consider each Brice team member as a friend and someone they looked forward to seeing every day they stayed at the hotel.

The ceremony, held under an expansive oak tree in Warren Square with beautiful natural lighting. The duo’s “amazing tribe” witnessed their vows from perfectly placed rows of white chairs. The Reverend Schulte officiated with a short-and-sweet (yet most meaningful) ceremony. Stephanie’s bouquet, as well as her brother’s boutonnieres, were wrapped in lace from their mother’s wedding dress.

The dinner reception took place in the Mercer and Greene rooms, while the toasts, cake cutting and dancing happened in the Slate room. A remembrance table and small silver cats honored the couple’s 10-year-old felines at home, Teddy and Oz. The table names paid tribute to Savannah (think “Riverwalk,” “Oak,” and “Forsyth”), while the Sweetheart Table showcased the couple’s name flaps from their firefighter turnout gear.
